Asbestos in Nebraska
For decades, Nebraska buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Nebraska residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Nebraska workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Nebraska asbestos exposure sites include:
- Nebraska factories
- Powerplants in Nebraska
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Nebraska
